Torna Novecento Fantastico con Tom Reamy

Disponibile a partire da giovedì 13 maggio San Diego Lightfoot Sue, undici racconti fantastici dell’americano Tom Reamy, originariamente pubblicati tra il 1974 e il 1979.
I protagonisti di questi racconti sono spesso creature incontaminate, sia che si tratti di adolescenti, di freaks o di emarginati. Ai loro occhi si apre un realtà diversa, “magica”, un mondo ammantato da un senso di stupore e mistero, e che nasconde verità a volte spaventose, altre semplicemente “strane”.

Il volume, che sarà disponibile in versione sia cartacea che digitale, è già ordinabile sul nostro sito a questo link.

Inoltre giovedì 13 maggio alle ore 21:00 sarà possibile seguire sulla nostra pagina Facebook e sul nostro canale YouTube la presentazione del volume, a cura di Andrea Vaccaro. All’interno della stessa trasmissione saranno anche annunciati i finalisti dell’ottava edizione del Premio Hypnos.

Campagna per preservare le lettere di H.P. Lovecraft

La HPLHS (H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society), gruppo di appassionati del mondo lovecraftiano con soci in tutto il mondo e attivo dal 1986, ha lanciato una campagna online di raccolta fondi per preservare le lettere inviate da H.P. Lovecraft al suo amico scrittore Frank Belknap Long, attualmente messe in vendita da un collezionista privato. Le lettere, in numero di cinquantadue e scritte tra il 1920 e il 1931 per un totale di 509 pagine, sono in gran parte inedite. Scopo della HPLHS, insieme agli studiosi lovecraftiani S.T. Joshi e David E. Schultz, e all’editore Derrick Hussey della Hippocampus Press, è di raccogliere sufficienti fondi per consentire l’acquisizione del lotto da parte della Brown University di Providence, sede della John Hay Library dove è raccolta la più grande collezione mondiale delle lettere di H.P.Lovecraft.

A questo link potrete trovare maggiori informazioni e le indicazioni per partecipare alla raccolta fondi.

The HPLHS (H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society), a worldwide group of enthusiastic people about H.P. Lovecraft and his gothic world, launched a fundraiser to preserve a collection of original letters from Lovecraft to his friend Frank Belknap Long. The collection, 52 letters written between 1921 and 1930 and total 509 pages, of which many have never been published, is now being sold by a private collector. The HPLHS, together with the lovecraftian scholars S.T. Joshi & David E. Schultz, and Hippocampus Press publisher Derrick Hussey, plans to raise enough funds to enable the John Hay Library at Brown University in Providence to make the acquisition and to add the letters to their collection of Lovecraft materials.
